lewis spent eight months in the white house with unprecedented access to president obama. we'll talk about who obama is and how he makes decisions. also, why is israel trying to get the united states to commit to waging war when israel itself isn't willing to do so. and finally we'll take a look at these pictures. do you think they were taken by nasa or the european space agency? no, a teenager with a second-hand camera. >>> but first here's my take. the images of the american embassy burning in benghazi might have conjured up memories of tehran in 1979, but the analogy is false. in libya, the government is not fomenting anti-americanism. it's lamb meanting it. the violence there appears to have been the work of small extremist elements that lack much popular support. but the storm has spread from libya. across the middle east there have been protests rallying against the united states and the west in general. even in these places, however, keep in mind that these crowds number in the hundreds, perhaps thousands. in countries with tens of millions of people. they make for vivid image
. president obama is promising justice. >> the united states condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. we're working with the government of libya to secure our diplomats and i am calling to increase our security at diplomatic posts around the world, and make no mistake, we will work with the libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people. >> the people he is talking about, four members of the u.s. foreign service who were killed overnight in libya. among them u.s. ambassador jay christopher stevens, president obama's appointed man to watch over libya after the long rule of muammar gadhafi. someone fired a rocket into the u.s. consulate in benghazi during a chaotic protest. we're going to join cnn joeman. she's with us. tell us about this attention that erupted in benghazi. it did not actually happen in tripoli. are you in tripoli. how are people responding to what has taken place? >> well, the situation here in tripoli does seem to be normal. people are on the streets. there seems to be nothing but the news that -- of what happened in ben
and the consulate to the white house rose garden earlier today. president obama also weighing in on this saying in no uncertain terms that justice will be served for those responsible for the death of the four americans. >> the word must stand together to unekwifically reject these brutal acts. already many libyans have joined us in doing so, and this attack elizabeth break the bonds between the united states and libya. libyan security personnel fought back against the attackers along side americans. libyans helped some of our diplomats find safety, and they carried ambassador stevens' body to the hospital where we tragically learned that he had died. >> senior u.s. military sources are telling us that they are going to send unmanned airplane drones into the skies over benghazi, libya. their job is going to be to look for camps used by extremists and other targets that could be connected to the death of u.s. ambassador chris stevens and the three other americans. christian amanpour joins us. you have been covering this region for decades now. when you, first of all, hear the news that it looks

, that will sit well with the voters he was talking to. president obama has a whopping 40-point lead among latino voters. did romney do anything last night that would put a dent in that? >> i don't know if he's going to put a dent in it. i don't think it's a one-night approach or one-night solution type of thing. he has been doing a lot of things this week. he had the speech in front of the u.s. hispanic chamber of commerce. he had a big interview with telemundo, this candidate forum and more than that, he has begun to spend millions of dollars on spanish ads in hispanic tv. we'll have to see if it works. i hope it's not too little too late. it's very important for the latino community that we not be taken for granted by one party and ignored by the other. the best thing that could happen to us is that both candidates fight hard to earn our votes and to really court us. >> i know you called romney's trip latino paloosa. i like that. and he is sort of going on that, right? >> you're right. >> he did talk about immigration and he seemed to soften his stance. tell me about that. >> he definitely sof

, barack obama saying that he doesn't really consider egypt an ally or an enemy at this point, that it really is time will tell, this is a work in progress. that really is kind of a stunning change of position from the white house perspective. >> reporter: i think that that statement took many people by surprise and shocked them a great deal. part of the anti-u.s. sentiment, and there is an anti-u.s. sentiment in the clashes today and in the protests on tuesday and in the various countries where the protests are taking plaes, the u.s. has been -- egypt has been a major ally for the u.s. to the extent that five different u.s. administrations supported our dictator, mubarak. i think the white house realized, because over the past few minutes i've been reading statements, the white house realized what a shocking statement that was and it looks like they're trying to back pedal from this idea that egypt has been demoted as an ally. i think everybody right now feels how sensitive the situation is and understands this political jockeying for power and again to reiterate, it's -- the
